Coconut Flax Cookies

These cookies are thick and chewy. The coconut flour and the coconut itself, add a very nice flavor. Coconut adds iron, potassium and phosphorus as well as fiber to these cookies. When using coconut flour, be aware that coconut absorbs fluid like a sponge, so you may need to adjust the liquid. The ground flax is high in Lignans which helps to metabolize estrogen properly. Bon Appétit!

Mix the following dry ingredients together:
1 cup almond flour
